There are many things to consider before hiring a lawn cutting service. Make sure to keep these things in mind before you choose a professional.
What does the lawn cutting service include?
It’s very important to communicate with your lawn cutting service provider to ensure that you both understand what is expected to be included in the price. There are several things that could be included (or not included) in lawn mowing service, such as mowing and edging, clean up and removal of lawn trimmings, weed pulling and/or killing, fertilizing, lawn aeration, and shrub/hedge trimming, amongst other things. You need to decide exactly what tasks you want your lawn care professional to take care of, and which tasks, if any, you plan to take care of yourself. Don’t forget about gardening and other landscaping maintenance! You might personally love planting and pruning flowers, but loath firing up the weed wacker, so make sure your lawn cutting service professional knows what areas they should focus on.
How often will the service be needed?
Every lawn is different, and environmental factors will likely play into your lawn cutting service schedule. Your lawn care professional should be able to give you an idea of how often certain tasks will need to be done and also work around your personal schedule. You might find that due to extra rain and sunshine in the spring, your lawn will require weekly trims, while during a different time of the year the service schedule can be changed to biweekly. Maintenance tasks such as hedge trimming, gardening, and landscaping pruning might be performed more or less often than lawn cutting service – it all depends on each individual yard. Here at Hackmann Lawn & Landscaping, we happily work around your schedule and have no problem altering that schedule to accommodate you. If you’re having a party and want to make sure your yard is looking top-notch, just give us a call, and we’ll give your yard a spruce!
Will the same people show up for each lawn cutting?
When it comes to your lawn cutting service team, consistency is key. If you’re particular about how your lawn edging is done, or you really like your hedges trimmed in a certain way, you should only have to explain that once. If your lawn care service sends a different team every time, you might find yourself getting frustrated as you explain the particulars of your yard over and over again. High turnover rate for employees within a lawn care company is a real red flag. You want a lawn cutting service that you can depend on to deliver excellent service consistently.
Why hire a service?
Many people wonder why they should hire a lawn cutting service when they might be able to tackle the tasks themselves. There are several reasons to count on a professional.
Your time is valuable. Most people who mow their own lawn end up sacrificing at least half a day over their already short weekend to properly care for their lawn. If you throw in gardening and other landscaping, you could easily lose an entire day. Hiring a professional allows you to free up a significant amount of your time each month.
The equipment needed to properly care for a lawn goes far beyond a simple lawn mower. You’ll need things such as a trimmer, hedge clippers, leaf blowers, and more. Not only will you have to worry about investing in the often-pricey equipment, you’ll also have to pay for regular maintenance and worry about the amount of space you’ll need to store the equipment. Older equipment will not only require more maintenance, but it will likely force you to work harder and longer on your lawn as the effectiveness of the equipment decreases as the equipment ages. A professional lawn cutting service will show up with all the necessary equipment, and you can rest assured that they will be working with high-quality and properly maintained tools.
If you’re looking for that perfectly manicured, lush, green lawn – you can’t beat a professional lawn cutting service. Everyone has their strengths, and you can be sure that a lawn care professional knows exactly how to maintain a truly beautiful yard.
